CONVEYANCING AND PROPERTY
CONVEYANCING & PROPERTY
The Conveyancing department benefits from the seamless combination of a tested and proven file management system and the latest electronic technology to provide fast and efficient service to a broad range of conveyancing clients. At the heart of the department are highly skilled and experienced conveyancing secretaries who perform the core functions of file management and reporting.
The legal end is run by four conveyancers, John Louw, Lester Klue, Fuad de Vries, Tasleema Rinquest and technical specialist Dudley Lee who, collectively, has more than seventy years conveyancing experience. John and Lester run the department’s local practice and serve on the panels of most of the major South African banks. The pair also has considerable experience in the conveyancing end of property development and has worked on large scale developments in the cities and along the west coast of South Africa, from inception to completion. Fuad, Dudley, Tasleema and Crystal run the correspondent practice and serve as Cape Town and King William’s Town correspondents to law firms throughout the country. In addition to their core function of preparing deeds for lodgement and attending to registration thereof, they also provide technical assistance where required. Correspondents enjoy easy access via telephone or email and are often able to resolve technical issues in a matter of minutes.
Our King William’s Town branch was opened in November 2017. The office is strategically located a few steps from the King William’s Town Deeds Office, which deals with property transactions for most of the Eastern Cape Province. We have appointed Crystal Tatchell, a local conveyancer with more than five years of post admission experience, to run the office. She has the support of two experienced secretaries and two assistants. Our Cape Town resources are also close at hand to assist where required.
At present, Fuad de Vries and Tasleema Rinquest commute between Cape Town and King William’s Town on a weekly basis to provide further support.
On the administration side the department enjoys the support of dedicated filing personnel and a Deeds Office Assistant. Every day there are at least four representatives of Vanderspuy at the Cape Town Deeds Office and three representatives at the King William’s Town Deeds Office. Our strong presence ensures that there is always an open channel of communication between ourselves and the Deeds Offices and allows us to keep abreast of any changes in the examination process as they occur.
VanderSpuy’s conveyancing departments are geared towards delivering speed and accuracy to its clients. Our philosophy is “what can be done today gets done today” and by adhering to this philosophy we are confident that we can deliver the level of service that you expect from your attorney.
